The Dental School 

THE DENTAL SCHOOL was founded and is maintained for 
the purpose of preparing young men and young women in the 
most thorough manner for the practice of dentistry, and for 
the promotion of dental science and dental literature. 

The Dental School was organized in 1887 and three years later 
became a department of the University. In 1896 it absorbed the 
American College of Dental Surgery and for some years occupied the 
building on Franklin and Madison Streets, Chicago, formerly occu- 
pied by that school. It is now located in Northwestern University 
Building, at the corner of Lake and Dearborn Streets, Chicago, 
occupying the upper three floors of the building, over 60,000 square 

The Clinic Room, sufficient in extent to accommodate the great 
clinic and the offices connected with it, is of the best design of con- 
struction, consisting of a single room with arched ceiling. It is on 
the sixth floor, with free light on two sides and abundant skylight. 
Adjoining the Operative Clinic is the Prosthetic Clinic, and on the 
same floor is the senior Prosthetic laboratory for crown and bridge 
work, the laboratory for porcelain and cast metal inlay work, an 
impression room, and two rooms and waiting room for extracting. 
The lecture rooms, three in number, are arranged on the amphi- 
theater plan; each accommodates 225 students. Two are for the 
ordinary class lecture work, and one for the Oral Surgery clinic 
which has a waiting-room for surgical patients, a room for diagnosis 
and the preparation of patients, and a recovery room with sufficient 
beds for the temporary care of patients. Other rooms are the Ana- 
tomical laboratory, which is placed well apart, the first year and the 
second year Prosthetic laboratories, the Operative Technic labora- 
tory, the first year and the second year Chemical laboratories, the 
laboratory for Histology and Bacteriology, the photographic labora- 
tory, the museum, the reading room and library. 

Northwestern University Building is in the transportation cen- 
ter of over three millions of people living within a radius of forty 
miles, a location especially advantageous for obtaining the great 
number of clinical patients needed in a dental school. 


Admission and Instruction 

A candidate for admission to the Dental School may be accepted 
upon presentation of a diploma or equivalent certificate from an ac- 
credited high school or kindred educational institution, or upon 
passing a satisfactory examination. The diploma must be signed by a 
superintendent of schools, the principal of a high school, or other 
responsible school officer. A certificate showing that a candidate has 
been graduated from an accredited high school, or from a school giving 
an equivalent course, signed by a city or county superintendent of 
schools, or by a state superintendent of public instruction, will be 
accepted as the equivalent of a diploma. A candidate who does not 
present such diploma or certificate must take an examination before a 
state superintendent of public instruction, or his deputy, and bring 
a report showing that the candidate has a preliminary education 
equivalent to that to be obtained in an accredited high school. 

This School will receive no student who is not present within 
ten days after the opening day of the session in each year, or in 
case of necessary delays, by reason of illness properly certified by 
the attending physician, within twenty days after the opening day. 

Students registering agree thereby to accept the discipline im- 
posed by the Faculty. 

It is desirable that students should register early, since the order 
of assignment of seats in the lecture halls is based upon the order 
of registration. 


Students from high schools and colleges, wishing credit for courses 
parallel to courses required in this School, should bring credentials 
showing the time spent on these subjects and should present their 
note books written in these courses. 

Students who present certificates from other recognized dental 
schools covering subjects required in this School w T ill be credited 
with such studies if the credentials are satisfactory to the Dean and 
to the professors in the respective departments, but when admitted 
to the third year the candidate must do one full year's work in 
this School. Graduates in medicine are credited with one year of 


Course for the Degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery 

The course covers three years. The year begins on the first 
Tuesday in October and closes on Commencement Day of the Uni- 
versity in June. There are thirty-two weeks of actual instruction 
given, six days in each week. 

Students for the regular course are received only during the first 
ten days of the first semester. Students desiring to pursue special 
studies may be received at any time. 

For regular students who desire to extend their studies to four 
or more years, a special arrangement of studies will be provided. 

A post graduate, or practitioner's course has been specially ar- 
ranged which begins the day after Commencement in each year, and 
continues during four weeks thereafter. 


The studies of the course are grouped by departments, the work 
of each department proceeding from the general and fundamental 
subjects to the specialized and advanced. 

The work in the departments is planned with reference to that 
of other departments, and the greatest care is taken that the whole 
shall be so correlated that the student in taking up a new subject 
will find himself prepared by work done in other departments. 

Schedule of Courses 

Students are expected to take the courses in the order enumer- 
ated, but some deviation from this rule may be allowed in cases 
approved by the Faculty. 

Each of the departments is presented under the headings as given 
in the table below, separately and completely, and in alphabetical 
order, and courses are described fully in the order of the letters.

The equipment of the department of anatomy is new and com- 
plete. The large Anatomical Laboratory, on the top floor of the 
building, is well lighted on the east and south by numerous windows, 
and in the center of the room by a large skylight. The ventilation 
is perfect. The equipment includes thirty-six dissecting tables of 
the latest pattern, of metal with plate-glass tops. The floor is water- 
proof and has such drainage that it can be flooded with hose and 
kept thoroughly clean. Skeletons are provided for the use of the 
students. On payment of a small deposit bones may be taken for 
home study.

Comparative Dental Anatomy 


(Note. — In the absence of Professor Dorsey the subject will be pre- 
sented by Assistant Professor Stowell.) 

It is the design of the department to give in a concise form a 
view of the animal kingdom and its classifications, especially of the 
vertebrates, the forms of teeth in relation to food habits, and as 
weapons of offense and defense; a study of the extinct species of 
animals of the several classes, variations in tooth forms, illustrating 
development through the geological ages; the history of the changes 
from the simple forms to the complex forms now existing. The 
Museum of the Dental School is especially rich in skulls of the sev- 
eral orders of the animal kingdom, and furnishes illustrations for 
the study of all of the known tooth forms. The great collection of 
the Field Columbian Museum is available for illustration and study. 


a. Evolution — The meaning of similarity of structure; natural 
selection; changes in organs; correlation of growth between parts; 
principles of heredity and of fixity of species; tooth forms; defini- 
tions and descriptions of the varieties of forms; the typical mamma- 
lian dentation; classification of the animal kingdom, with concise 
descriptions of the typical characteristics of each. First semester. 
Two lectures a week. Professor Stowell. 

Professional Ethics, Dental Jurisprudence, and 


This work consists of a brief statement of the important prin- 
ciples of morals; an exposition of the special duties and moral obli- 
gations of professional men to their patients, their fellow practi- 
tioners, and the public; the more important contrasts between the 
proper ethical standard of the professions and those of business or 
manufacturing pursuits. 

The lectures on Jurisprudence follow, in the main, the text-book 
by Dr. Rehfuss, and include qualification and duty of expert wit- 
nesses, the importance of dental records, the limitations of dental 
practice, the qualifications required and the liabilities incurred, the 
penalties that may be suffered, and the defense to be made in case 


of alleged malpractice; the laws respecting the practice of dentistry, 
the steps necessary to become legal practitioners, and the duties 
and liabilities of dentists with reference to the law. 


a. Ethics — Elementary principles of ethics; professional ethics; 
state laws relating to dentistry; Illinois dental law; dental juris- 
prudence; general review. Second semester. One lecture a week. 
Professor Edmund Noyes. 

b. Dental Economics — This course was established to equip the 
increasing number of students without previous preceptorship in a 
dental office with a knowledge of the business side of dental prac- 
tice. The work embraces practice building, methods of obtaining 
and retaining patients, business relations between the dentist and 
his patients, fees, accounts, records of operations, presentation and 
collection of accounts, methods of economy in the conduct of an 
office. Second semester. One lecture a week. Dr. Koch. 



The department is provided with a large laboratory, fitted with 
seventy-one hardwood desks, each furnished with reagents, lockers, 
a compound microscope with lenses and condensers, electric lights, 
and other conveniences for preparation of specimens and micro- 
scopic study. It is provided also with a stereopticon and projecting 
microscope for demonstration purposes. Adjoining this large lab- 
oratory, there are a professor's study, and preparation laboratory 
with a photographic room fully equipped with all necessary appa- 

The laboratory classes are usually divided into sections of not 
more than fifty students. This work has been greatly aided by a 
large collection of lantern slides from photo-micrographs and framed 
photographic prints; and by a large histological museum containing 
sets of microscopic slides sufficient in number on any given subject 
for a full section of the class, illustrating not only the ordinary soft 
tissues, but also the peridental membranes, dental pulp, periosteum, 
and ground sections of the teeth. These microscopic slides and 
sections, together with those stained and mounted by the students. 
are used by the classes for purposes of study. 



a. Lecture Course — The construction and the use of the micro- 
scope. A study of cell structure and functions, of the elementary

General Pathology 


This course is essential to the student's understanding of gen- 
eral pathological conditions, and forms the basis of his studies of 
the special pathology of the tissues of the teeth, the membranes of 
the teeth; the correlated tissues, and the organs of the mouth.

Operative Dentistry, Pathology and Bacteriology 




Operative Dentistry in some of its forms is presented to the 
student from the time he enters the school to his graduation. In 
the first semester of the first year he makes a study of the human 
teeth, or dental anatomy. Operative technics is presented in the 


second semester and includes studies of the forms and nomenclature 
of the instruments used in operations on the teeth, of the prepara- 
tion of cavities for filling, of filling materials and their manipulation. 

The second year includes a lecture course with demonstrations 
on the technical procedures in filling teeth, and the student begins 
practical operations in the clinic room. 

The third year includes a review of the technical procedures in 
filling operations, followed by a careful study of the pathology of 
dental caries, and the adaptation of means to its amelioration and 

The Clinic Rooms, built especially for the purpose, have abundant 
room with the best of light. They are well equipped with Colum- 
bia operating chairs in ample number for the classes. 

The Operative Infirmary Clinic is under the direct supervision 
of the Professor of Operative Dentistry. The student begins this 
work with the opening of his second year and continues it to the 
end of the third year; the time given to it is much greater in the 
third year than in the second. It is the intention that this infirmary 
practice shall be as much like an actual dental practice as possible. 
The development of the ability to obtain and hold a practice, or the 
professional courtesy of an operator toward his patient essential to 
personal success, is regarded equal in importance to the development 
of manipulative ability. 

The clinic rooms are open through the whole year for the 
benefit of students who may wish to have greater experience in 
clinical practice under competent supervision. The number of dem- 
onstrators during the summer is sufficient for the class that chooses 
to remain with the school. The clinical material is ample and ex- 
cellent opportunity is offered for clinical practice.

General Statements 

Requirements for Degree 

The degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery is conferred upon stu- 
dents recommended therefor by the Faculty of the School. Candi- 
dates are recommended who have attended the required courses of 
lectures, who have passed satisfactorily all required examinations in 


the subjects of study, the entire last year having been completed in 
this School; who have completed the required clinical and labora- 
tory work; who in the judgment of the Faculty are of fit moral 
character and are 21 years of age; and who have discharged in full 
all financial obligations to the University. 

The Library and Reading Room 

The Menges Library and Reading Room, named in honor of the 
late Dr. Theodore Menges, occupies, together with the attached 
Journal Reading Room, three thousand feet of floor space. It is 
furnished with reading tables and chairs for about one hundred 
students. The Library contains 3,079 volumes of books on dental 
and collateral subjects; a rich supply of dictionaries and encyclo- 
pedias conveniently placed in the Reading Room for easy consulta- 
tion; and a nearly complete list of the dental journals that have been 
published in the English language, with about 16,000 duplicate num- 
bers. The books most used by the students are duplicated, up to 
six or twelve, and a few to fifteen copies. The books and journals 
may be used in the Reading Room without restriction, and when 
the duplication of volumes will allow, they may be drawn out as a 
circulating library. 


The Museum is in the Reading Room and is open to inspection 
and study. The cases are arranged to show the specimens to the 
best advantage. 

The comparative anatomy specimens are, with the exception of 
the gorilla and chimpanzee, of which there are full skeletons, heads 
with the teeth. There is a sufficient number of varieties of each of 
the several orders to afford specimens of every kind of tooth form 
and of every variety of placement in mammals, saurians, and snakes, 
with a large variety of fishes. 

The principal specimens of human skulls are, first, an excellent 
mounting of the separated bones of the adult; second, a fine set of 
dissections in a series showing the development of the teeth and the 
roots from the first appearance in the fetus to the full adult devel- 
opment, and illustrating the absorption of the roots of the deciduous 
teeth, the shedding process, and the replacement by permanent teeth ; 
also the absorption of the alveolar processes after the loss of teeth, 
with the changes that occur in the form of the bones of the jaws 
from childhood to old age. This is an exceptionally complete, at- 
tractive, and valuable set of specimens. There is also a variety of 
ordinary human skulls. 


The Museum contains also a valuable collection of human teeth 
of abnormal forms; a very full and complete set of specimens illus- 
trating interproximal wear and the flattening of the points of inter- 
proximal contact. It is especially rich in casts of cases of super- 
numerary teeth ; some illustrations of the very early forms of artificial 
teeth, of manufactured porcelain teeth, and of dental instruments, 
illustrating the development in these lines. This collection has 
been made in the School largely by students and by alumni, and 
is being continually increased by donations from those who have met 
with specimens unusual or rare in practice. Such donations are 
requested from all practitioners to assist in building up this great 
museum of abnormal conditions of teeth and of associated parts for 
the benefit of dental education. 

Situation and Surroundings 

The central location of the school and its convenient access from 
every point affords many and peculiar advantages to its students. 
It gives them the widest possible range of choice of residence while 
attending the school, without inconvenience in coming and going. 
It also gives the school the widest range of territory from which 
to draw the extensive clinic so necessary to a great dental school. 
The patients for this clinic come from all parts of the city of Chi- 
cago and its suburbs. The personal influence of the students of the 
school, each one of whom draws from his own friends and acquaint- 
ances, made in and about his place of residence, is an invaluable 
adjunct to the number who come simply as acquaintances of the 
school. Patients who come as the friends of students make up the 
personal clinical practice of the individual student. 

In this the out-of-town students seem to be in no respect less 
favored than the student whose home is in the city. This gaining, 
and holding, a personal clinical practice under the supervision of the 
instructors in the clinic rooms has come to be one of the features 
of this school that has a telling effect upon the after-practice of its 
students. By this plan of work the student not only learns the the- 
ory of practice and the manipulations of practical operations in den- 
tistry, but he passes at once to the work of real experience in build- 
ing a practice for himself; in gaining that skill in professional 
comity and personal manner between himself and his patients, which 
is as necessary to him in after years, in drawing together and main- 
taining a practice, as his knowledge of dental diseases and his skill 
in their treatment. 


For these reasons the residence of students in groups in widely 
different portions of the city is favored. This also gives the benefits 
of a more homelike life, while giving in the aggregate a far better 
conception of life in a great city and decidedly better opportunity 
to draw upon its advantages, while shunning the disadvantages of 
large gatherings of students in a single locality. 

Chicago is a great city and gives many opportunities to the stu- 
dent who learns to avail himself of them. Lincoln Park on the 
north offers, besides its beautiful pleasure grounds, some extensive 
botanical gardens and winter conservatories, where all manner of 
plants may be enjoyed and studied; a fine zoological collection, 
where a large variety of animal and bird life may be studied, and 
the Museum of Natural History, in which there is a very large 
collection of birds, animals and fossil remains of extinct animal life. 
Jackson and Washington Parks on the south, besides their ex- 
tensive pleasure grounds, also offer splendid botanical gardens and 
winter conservatories, while the Field Columbian Museum offers 
a rare collection of Natural History specimens especially suited for 
the study of comparative dental anatomy, of modern and ancient 
skulls and the condition of the teeth in the various races and types 
of men in different ages. The admission to this museum is free to 
students on presentation of their matriculation tickets to this school. 

Other Libraries 

A number of libraries are accessible to students who have taste 
for study, or for looking up subjects of scientific or literary interest, 
or in connection with special studies. 

The University library collections offer very abundant facili- 
ties for students. They are ample in the number of books adapted 
to the different schools and are so situated as to be easily acces- 
sible; generally within the school buildings. They consist of: 

The College collection. 

The Law collection. 

The Medical collection. 

The Pharmacy collection. 

The Theodore Menges Library of the Dental School, and 

The Theological collection. 

Chicago Library (462,361 volumes, January, 191 2) is on 
Michigan Avenue and Washington Street, five minutes' walk from 
the school. It is one of the finest libraries in the country. Students 
may receive books from this library when vouched for by responsible 
persons known to the officials. This library has also many branch 


offices in different parts of the city, from which books may be re- 
ceived on application. These are convenient to many of the board- 
ing places of students. 

The Newberry Library is very large (285,000 volumes, Jan- 
uary, 1912), and, besides general works, has also a large medical and 
dental library. It is on North Clark Street and Walton Place, and 
may be reached in a ten minutes' walk. This is a reference library, 
and books can be used only in its reading rooms. 

The John Crerar Library (270,000 volumes, January, 
1912), occupies one and one-half floors in the Marshall Field Build- 
ing, corner Wabash Avenue and Washington Street. It is devoted 
mainly to the natural, the physical and the social sciences, with their 
applications. It is a most excellent collection of books. It is a 
reference library, and its books are used only in its reading rooms. 

These libraries are accessible to our students, and they will find 
in them not only a very large collection of books, but also men in 
attendance who are able and willing to assist students in finding 
information upon any given subject. 

There are a large number of other libraries, both general and on 
special subjects, that are available to the student who may wish to 
make proper and legitimate use of them. 


Text-books will be on sale in the Theodore Menges Library of 
the school at publishers' prices. There will be a small profit from 
the sale of these books, which will be used for the benefit of the 
library. Students are invited to purchase their books in the school 
and aid the library. Each student will be required to have the books 
designated below. The Reference books are in the library and may 
be used as needed.

The instruments essential to the students in the several depart- 
ments of the school have been carefully studied and determined. 
Much care has been taken in the selection of the instrument 
sets that the variety of forms may be sufficient for the student's 
needs without being excessive. Close study of this subject and long, 
careful observation of students and the progress they make in the 
attainment of manipulative skill show their progress to be closely 
related to their instrument equipment. Therefore this school must 
demand that the instrument sets required be obtained by each stu- 
dent as a condition to his continuance in school work. 

In operative dentistry it is found that a close adherence to the 
formula plan, in the study of cutting instruments particularly, is 
essential in teaching the important subject of cavity preparation, and 
this will be carried out critically in all the departments of the 
school. This teaching is begun in the technic classes and the same 
lines of instruction are followed progressively by teachers and demon- 
strators in all of the departments to the end of the Senior year, the 
same instrument sets being used throughout the course of study. 

In prosthetic dentistry and in the several laboratories a similar 
care as to instruments is maintained. 



The instruments in the list are required because they are essen- 
tial to the student's progress, and students must provide them. 
Students should not bring with them, nor purchase, instruments of 
other patterns, for they cannot be received as equivalents of the 
required sets. They are the same as those that have been required in 
former years. No student is required to make changes in his instru- 
ment sets during his three years' course, and these instruments form 
his instrument equipment for entering practice after graduation.

In addition to the above list it is recommended strongly that each student obtain 
the quadrangle instruments, both the direct and the back-action, and the back-action 
pluggers to be used by mallet pressure. It is also recommended that each student 
obtain his own furnace for porcelain work and his own device for casting gold 
inlays, and make use of these while in school. 

Summer Clinics 
The clinic rooms will be open all the year for the benefit of 
students who may wish to have greater experience in clinical practice 
under competent supervision. The number of demonstrators during 
the summer will be ample for the class that may choose to remain 
with the school. The clinical material is abundant, and an excellent 
opportunity is afforded for clinical practice. 


The value and adequacy of the clinical instruction and experi- 
ence in practice to students is inestimable. The extent of it can be 
best understood by an examination of the subjoined condensed tab- 
ular statement, extracted from the Examiner's report for the year 
ending June 30, 1912:

The special patients are assigned to such students of their ac- 
quaintance as they ask to have take care of their cases, while the 
general patients are assigned by the Examiner to such students as 
need the particular experience and practice that their cases involve. 
Many of these general patients have come to the school for a num- 
ber of years and continue to come in the same manner as they would 
go to the office of a dental practitioner. The school has thus ac- 
quired a very large clinic, really large enough for the instruction of 
a fairly large class of students, but the students are encouraged to 
have their friends ask for their especial services, as a step in the 
direction of the teaching of practice building. 


The operations performed for these 9,681 patients during the 
year were 48,858 in the Operative, 3,820 in the Prosthetic, 317 in 
the Oral Surgery, and 1,430 in the Orthodontia Department; a 
total of 54,425 separate operations. Among the operations per- 
formed in the Operative Clinic were: 

11,111 fillings of all descriptions. 
2,964 root fillings. 
1,209 pulps devitalized. 
1,254 plupa removed under cocain. 
823 dead pulps removed. 
56 cases of pericementitis treated. 
52 cases of pyorrhea treated. 
2,031 cases of removal of calcareous deposits. 
6,135 cases of extraction. 
617 cases of administration of general anesthetics. 
458 cases of administration of local anesthetics. 

13 porcelain inlays. 
562 cast gold inlays. 
In the Prosthetic Department were made and inserted: 

254 gold and porcelain bridges 826 teeth 

573 shell crowns 573 teeth

The annual clinics will be held Tuesday, June 10, 19 13, at the 
University Building. 

Through the medium of the Journal we have aroused a keener 
interest among the members of our Association. 

All are requested to send in material of interest. The Journal 
will serve as a medium for the exchange of friendly greetings. A 
new interest will thus be aroused, and still better work done and 
more accomplished by our Association in the future. 

All members of the Association in good standing will receive the 
Journal. The payment of their dues, annually, fifty cents, secures 
the Journal without additional cost. 

Any graduate of the Northwestern University Dental School 
may become a member of the Alumni Association upon payment of 
the membership fee of one dollar and fifty cents annually. 

We ask that the Alumni will support this undertaking even 
stronger than in the past, and cooperate earnestly with the officers 
of the Association and the Journal staff in making our official publi- 
cation a still greater success. 

For any information regarding the Association, address the 
secretary, Dr. P. B. D. Idler,
